about

L'ombre des arbres, From Ariettes oubliées, L. 60, No. 3 - Claude Debussy

lyrics

The shadow of the trees, in the misty river,
is vanishing like smoke.
Meanwhile, in the air, among the real branches,
lament the turtle-doves.

How much, oh traveler, this pale landscape
mirrored your pallid self.
And how sadly wept, in the high foliage,
your drowned hopes.
(translation by Roxanna Walitzki)

...

L'ombre des arbres dans la rivière embrumée
Meurt comme de la fumée,
Tandis qu'en l'air, parmi les ramures réelles,
Se plaignent les tourterelles.

Combien, ô voyageur, ce paysage blême
Te mira blême toi-même,
Et que tristes pleuraient dans les hautes feuillées, -
Tes espérances noyées.
(text by Paul Verlaine)
